GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Lack of momentum to close above 1.4980-90 (38.2% retracement) may highlight a near-term topping process in GBP/USD; break of the bullish RSI momentum to favor downside targets, but need a close below 1.4700-10 (78.6% expansion) to favor a resumption of the downward trend.
  • Despite the weakness in the U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI), a rebound in Retail Sales may mitigate the bearish sentiment surrounding the sterling heading into the end of March.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) ratio has narrowed to +1.52 as short-interest gains traction amongst the retail crowd.

NZD/USD

NZD/USD Daily Chart
  • Despite the pullback from a fresh monthly high (7696), NZD/USD may continue to track higher over the next 24-hours of trade as New Zealand’s Trade Balance is expected to widen to 350M from 56M in January.
  • A further improvement in growth prospects may highlight a more bullish outlook for the kiwi especially as the bar remains high for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to revert back to its easing cycle.
  • Need a close above 0.7675(23.6% retracement) to 0.7700 (50% retracement) to favor a larger advance in NZD/USD.

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • With the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar index holding above the low (11,886) set following the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, the greenback may face a larger rebound especially as the RSI threatens the bearish structures.
  • Despite the choppy reaction to the better-than-expected U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) paired with dovish rhetoric from Fed Vice-Chair Stanley Fischer, another expansion in demand for U.S. Durable Goods may support the greenback going into April.
  • As 11,894 (61.8% retracement) offers near-term support, next topside region of interest comes in around 11,992 (38.2% retracement).
